When I first decided to go to nursing school (3-4 yrs ago) everyone told me oh your employer will pay back your loans or pay for your school. I actually knew a couple of RN's that had their tuitions paid in full for signing a contract to work somewhere X amount of yrs. Does this even happen anymore? I am a LPN and do not expect to be hired at a hospital as an LPN but I am going straight to get my RN and was wondering if I will be stuck with massive loans to pay off once I finish. What about IN or KY? Anything that would offer any assistance at all? Thanks so much!
